The Colts were coming off of a blowout victory vs. the Washington High Huskies led behind impressive performances by Senior Runningbacks Ke’sean Cohen and Tariq Jabbaar, who each ran for over 100 yards with touchdowns.
Logan proved that they could be a high-powered offense after averaging only 14 points a game all season and looked to maintain that momentum going into Friday nights game.
Things got out to a rough start for the Colts, as the Loggers quickly jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter by scoring on back-to-back drives, and holding Logan to a three-and-out on their first possession. Eureka brought out a handful of misdirection plays that caught the Colts off guard early, putting them in a tight spot defensively.
The Colts were finally able to score before halftime on a TD pass from junior quarterback, Irvin Garnica, to standout senior wide receiver, Rezjohn Wright. As it turns out, that drive was the only thing Logan had going for them the whole game. The Colts’ plays were plagued with small mistakes that cost them potential scoring opportunities, as they got into penalty trouble almost every time. It was either bad luck or just plain fatigue from the long ride, that caused the Colts to lose their usual mental sharpness and intensity.
